I work largely from life to create images of figures, still lives, landscapes, animals and buildings.
My major work is oil and egg tempera on linen and made in dialogue with the developments of marks on the painting, what I am observing, my imagination and what the developing image reveals during the process of it’s formation.
Smaller work is made largely with pencil on paper or several forms of drawing, oil stick, watercolor, tempera and ink on paper.
My work is expressionistic and focused on the intersection of the physical, emotional and intellectual processes both in the creation of an image as well as in what the final work ideally communicates to the viewer.
